Rotowire: Apr 23 / 8:54a ET
News: Jeffress owns a 2.45 ERA and 5:5 K:BB ratio in 7.1 innings over eight appearances out of the Brewers' bullpen.
Impact: Jeffress was a darkhorse closer candidate early this spring, but with Francisco Rodriguez back on the roster, he is working in a middle relief role for the Brewers. Jeffress has not been particularly sharp early in the season, but he has been able to limit the damage.
Rotowire: Mar 23 / 9:49a ET
News: Jeffress has given up two earned runs (2.35 ERA) while posting a 6:5 K:BB ratio in 7.2 innings over six appearances this spring.
Impact: Jeffress has pitched well this spring, and even better of late, giving up just two walks and no hits over his last four innings. It's unlikely he will open the season with a prominent role in the Brewers' bullpen, but he is essentially a lock to make the team, and should be a factor in the middle relief mix.
